This system is intended not only to the IT companies, but to the manufacturing companies and companies providing services. Incident or crisis (fire, flood, IT structure disruption, pandemics, etc.) can have serious impacts to the company, therefore it is better to prepare in advance and have a "plan B", that can be implemented via this standard. The overall business continuity depends on the correct risk identification and properly defined business continuity plan (BCP).
